Charlie Musselwhite

“The Harmonica According To Charlie Musselwhite”.
This is a CD reissue of an album recorded for Kicking Mule and produced by Stefan Grossman in 1977.Guitarist Sammy Mitchell, drummer Jeff Rich and myself were booked for 3 days to record basic tracks. Charlie’s tracks were done in a day and a half: mostly first takes with no rehearsal. The other day and a half were spent on an album for Sammy on which Charlie guested. The tracks were recorded in an old church. When Charlie got back to the US he commented that recording in England was like “playing in someone’s garage”. Our directions from Charlie were “play with a blues feel” and “when I put my finger up we end the tune”. This made things easy. Charlie is a very warm person and this comes across in his playing. I used an Alembic Series One bass for these sessions.
